Sometimes you gotta do things the old fashioned way. Had to fabricate some parts for this allied leisure machine using plastic resin. Worked out pretty well.

How did you make the part?

I've had to make several parts for my machines.

I have an advantage over most people...I have a cnc machine shop.

Having CNC access is cheating.

I want to hear about how people are making high quality replacement parts with a bar of soap and toothpicks.

Seriously, it's strange that we don't have better access to obsolete parts made with either CNC or 3D printers. Once someone goes through the setup once, it seems like repeats would be reasonably cost effective.

Me too (I don't own it, but rather, run the CNC dept.) I do a lot of 3D CAM work.

Nice work!

Thanks.

I used amazing mold putty (moldputty dot com) and their casting resin to make the paddles for the drop targets, flipper, and flipper cam shaft.

Stuff is good, and relatively strong.
